SIEPR Economic Summit

March 9, 2008

I was over at the SIEPR Economic Summit on Friday and ran into Craig Newmark (Craigslist, there as panelist) and Meg Whitman (former CEO, eBay, just attending) right after I walked in the door. Also there were: Larry Summers (ex-Harvard president and Clinton-era Secretary of the Treasury), Steven Chu (Nobel prize, Physics, Berkeley), and Henry Paulsen (current Secretary of the Treasury), among many other interesting folks. The most attended afternoon session was the one entitled “How’s Bernanke doing?” With all the negative news on the economy shaking up the headlines these days, this was, of course, not surprising.
